The Meteorological Department for Jammu and Kashmir has issued a weather warning from December 11 to December 15.

In a statement issued today, the MeT said: “A fresh Western Disturbance is most likely to affect the state of  J&K from 11th  to 15th Dec. 2017 with moisture feeding taking place from the Arabian Sea.”

“Under the influence of this system, moderate to heavy rain/snow is expected at widespread places of Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh region.

“The main activity of this system (moderate to heavy rainfall/snowfall) is likely to occur during 12-13th Dec 2017 and gradual decrease thereafter.  This will be the first ‘major wet spell’ during the current season for J&K.

According to the Director MeT, Sonam Lotus  the weather system may lead to disruption of surface and air transportation like Srinagar-Leh, Srinagar-Jammu, and Mughal Road etc.

It will bring relief to farmers, especially who have sown Rabi crops in plains of Kashmir and Jammu region and overall improvement in soil moisture.  

Hence farmers are advised not to irrigate the fields this week, it said.

Lotus issued a general warning for the state, saying higher reaches of Kashmir, Ladakh & Hilly area of Jammu most likely to receive moderate to Heavy snowfall during this period.

"There will be significant fall in day temperature and slight rise in night temperature," it said.
